North range at The Saracen's Head, Market Place, Southwell - Newark and Sherwood

Unoccupied wing of the hotel. The north range (and hotel) has been dated to circa 1460 with early and late C19 and C20 alterations and additions. The north range is a two storey six bay range of timber-framed close studding with brick underbuild and nogging. Irregular fenestration with late C19 casements. Some decay, collapse of the lime ash floor and limited penetration by vegetation. Listed Building Consent for repairs has been granted, alongside grant support from Historic England's Covid 19 Emergency Heritage at Risk Response Fund. A potential future use is being considered.
